Durkee Famous Sauce redux - An American Cult Classic Since 1857

If redux means the last post was in 2004.

While I doubt the sauce has changed, the above was more of what do do with it ... though the suggestion of mixing it with butter for popcorn has me interested.

My question is should I try it? Is it that delicous? For a small 10oz jar it is a little over $4 at a local market.

I know it is just mustard and mayo ... which makes me question the price ... but according to some people Durkee takes these two lowly ingrediants and somehow creates magic in a jar.

The title is from the Durkee site which claims that Mary bought it for Abe Lincoln's snacking pleasure. They claim the pioneers carried it westward with discarded Durkee's bottles found along covered wagon trails.

For $2, I would have bought it ... but $4 for a small jar of mustard and mayo ...

So hype ... or hyper-delicious?
